German intelligence has informed the United States that it is not looking for help staving off the same kind of election hacking attributed to Russia during the U.S. campaign, NBC News reported Tuesday.

The refusal is "a sign of the lack of trust that seems to be growing between Germany and the United States," NBC said.

The German election pitting conservative Prime Minister Angela Merkel against her party's center-left opposition is seen as a potential target for hacking efforts similar to those Russia used against the U.S. last year. The German opposition party, the Social Democrats, were thought to take a far gentler position against Russia's annexation of the Crimea in the past, though candidate Martin Schulz has warned against the lifting of sanctions.
